hybrid

So I am new here. I am also not the best golfer either but I am so addicted to the game. I just love it. My question is do they make a hybrid iron with steel shaft?

Welcome to the forum.  The answer is yes.  Check out the Manufacturers websites and look at the specs for the hybrid.  You will see different shaft options.

Thanks. I went to golf & ski a couple of days ago and all they had were graphite.

Why would someone new to golf want a hybrid with a steel shaft?

You will  probably be sacrificing considerable club head swing speed compared to graphite. Which may most likely translate into lost distance.

To stogiesnbogies: my swing speed is between 90 to 92 and that a graphite shaft is a lot harder to stay consistent with. I really like the weight. I have rented the Nike slingshots and love them but they don't make them any more. So I am trying to find a set of irons similar.

at least that is what golf and ski told me about graphite shaft clubs.

The nike slingshot hybrids can still be had new on ebay for about $35-$45.

Hey Mrmudd....

Whatever works for you.....but my swing speed is between 85 and 90 and I love regular flex graphite shafts.....to each his own.

Still playing 2,3,4-hybrids - Cleveland HALOs. Love them. Don't know what I'd do without them - all with steel shafts. 92 mph swing speed.

yeah sure hybrids can be made with steel shafts.

However a hybrid is originally made to get the ball airborne more easy.

Because a graphite shaft is lighter it easier to do so. That is why you don't see

them so often with steel shaft.

The Callaway x-hybrids were available in steel. I bag the 2h, 3h and 4h. Definitely sacrifices distance, but they do act perfectly as iron replacements... Going iron distances...

I wanted steel shafts when I started as well. I remember having V-Steel 3 and 5 woods with steel shafts because I liked the weight. I was use to swinging a baseball bat and if the club was too light I felt no control.

That was 12 years ago. Now I only have steel in my irons, 2 hybrids with graphite, 2 fairway metals with graphite and of course a Driver with graphite.

You can always re-shaft a club with what ever you want. I don't think graphite is harder to control though as long as you have the right flex. That's what matters IMO.

    • This will happen to me when I have the optimal club release. My distance hog is that I don't release the club well into the ball, and I kind of just pull it through. It works, but when I relax and get a good swing with a great controlled release through my hands I can feel the difference and it does go MUCH farther. 
    • A couple of videos and pictures from Turnberry yesterday - didn't play brilliantly, but managed +12 in serious wind, particularly on the front nine. Putting was hard with the new greens and I three putted twice on the front nine for the first time in ages. I also found it very hard in the wind and kept trying to fight it, overthinking things rather than sticking to what I was comfortable with. As a result, I only really found my game with a few holes to play. Highlights were a birdie on the par 5 eighth, an awesome drive on the 10th, which I got on camera, and making the Tom Watson 2009 up and down, having gone over the back as well from near the plaque . The course itself was incredible - the greens haven't yet fully settled in and so there are different speeds all over the place, but it's such a good test. If you don't find the fairway, you can't score.   Very short swings due to crazy amount of wind! Fourth green - with the wind, you have to start the ball off the left of it, pretty much on the ocean...: Second shot into the 7th green. Didn't make the putt (story of the day!): View from the new championship tee for the 9th: Panoramic view from the 10th green. Arguably the most scenic par five anywhere: My Tom Watson 2009 moment captured (sort of - plaque, tee shot and where my 6 iron over the back finished up): Not worth the money, I don't think - hard for it to ever be the case at the price, but I loved every minute of it. It's a great course and deserves to have the Open back soon. Western Gailes today and hopefully my swing is on better form!

    • Count me in. Charlotte is only about an hour away for me, which is no problem.
    • I hit whatever the current TM model was in the spring but really like the AP1's. But I'll do a proper unbiased fitting and see what the results are as in both instances for iron fittings, it's been done by Titleist reps.
